Earlier this year, Ethan, who attends Duckmanton Primary School, competed in the world championship, finishing fifth.

Proud parent Andreas said: “The school is very supportive and help with time off to attend events up and down the country.

“He has been racing motocross from the age of six and his favourite type of tracks to ride are sand, but also loves the mud!

“Last season Ethan finished third overall in the 2018 Minibike british championship so this year Ethan has his heart set on being crowned the 2019 British champion, so he is going into the next round fired up and not messing around.”
